Tips for sending your kids back to school after parents split

The beginning of a new school year is often hectic and challenging for kids and parents alike. However, for families where the parents have separated or divorced over the summer, the back-to-school transition can be even more daunting, even if the kids don't have to go to a new school.

Handling divergent parenting styles

Sometimes couples don't realize how different their parenting styles are until they break up and spend considerable periods of time parenting their children alone. Maybe they never even considered their individual parenting styles because they always parented their kids as a team.

Sleep problems often affect children of divorce

It's not unusual for children whose parents are going through a separation or divorce to have problems sleeping, even if they haven't previously or since they were very young. They're no doubt feeling at least some level of anxiety. Moreover, they are likely moving back and forth between houses. They have to get used to a new bedroom and new bed.

Verbal abuse and custody rights

If a child has been physically abused by a parent, it may be relatively easy for the other parent to gain primary, if not sole, custody of the children in a custody battle and perhaps require only supervised visitation. However, what if the other parent has been verbally abusive to the child, without actually striking him or her?

Anthony Weiner's guilty plea and child custody rights

The long saga of former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, who resigned from his job back in 2011 when his sexting activities with multiple women became public, was back in the news this month. Weiner tearfully pleaded guilty to sending an underage girl explicit images of himself last year. That's a federal crime.

Avoiding the pitfalls of texting, emailing with a co-parent

Texting and email save divorced co-parents from having to speak face to face or on the phone regularly, as they did in previous generations. However, they can have drawbacks as well, particularly when the former couple's relationship is less than amicable.

International child kidnapping case brings civil lawsuit

Most child custody cases aren't as complicated as this one. A man has been convicted of international parental kidnapping as well as conspiracy for helping a woman and her teenage daughter cross the border from New York into Canada, near Buffalo, back in 2009.
